comment Are whole and half note rests supposed to only be written on specific lines?
Hey! In the situation I was in it was a sigle voice, but thank you for mentioning a case where it does make sense, since I hadn't thought of that and it might be interesting to somebody else in the future. Wish I could merge this with @Matthew's answer!!

comment Violin strings breaking in fingerboard area
I don't know about guitar strings, but violin strings are made of a filament that can be synthetic and then covered (wound) in some metal.

I've updated the question with more information instead of here since I thought it would be easier to follow. Thanks!

comment Is it harmful to use an electronic tuner to check intonation while practicing ?
I mean a device in which there is a needle, light, letters or some visual indication that tells you the pitch it hears and therefore you know if you are "too high" or "too low" for the pitch you are supposed to be playing/singing.

comment How to remove all traces of rosin from a bow ?
Maybe there's no way!! But I have to consider the possibility that there are people out there with a lot more knowledge that might know of something that will work without damaging the bow hair. That is why I'm asking.

comment Do you count mental practice when counting total practice time for the day?
Aren't we supposed to be supporting this site so that we can merge with the Guitar site in the future instead of referring there ? Questions from that site should fit here with a "guitars" tag.

comment How can I improve my piano sight reading?
That's what I mean. "Satisfying" level depends on the person. For most people it is enough to be able to read enough to play music that is up to their level and maybe a little beyond. That should certainly be the minimum.

comment How can I improve my piano sight reading?
It depends on what a "satisfying" level is. Sight reading is not just about identifying pitches (A, B, C...). It is also about rhythm and other composer specifications about volume, speed, etc. In the ideal case you would take lessons just for that. It took me about a month because I started forcing myself to sightread as soon as I started learning to play and the pieces had a very simple rhrythm using only a few notes. As you progress with your technique the music notation will become more complex and your sightreading will have to adjust to that, so your progress will be constant.
